“Librarian” by Haunted Love

“Librarian” by Haunted Love. Gorgeous video, beautiful song. “Don’t you find me appealing in a nerdy sort of way?” I found out about this song from Marilyn Johnson’s This Book is Overdue: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All. She says: “The song ‘Librarian’ by the New Zealand duo Haunted Love debuted in 2006 with a video featuring two attractive performers suited up as mock librarians, hair pulled back, glasses in place, fingers and feet tapping in disapproval as a patron committed various crimes, like scattering books through the library and sticking gum under a table. The ‘librarians’ lure the culprit into the closed reserves with the promise of new magazines, then crush him between the movable stacks. The video recycled the usual cliches, but at least it was stylishly done.” Thanks, Marilyn Johnson!
